The Circle of Sacred Smoke was created by Japanese artist Junkyu Muto in 2008. It is one of three sculptures of Muto's International Peace Project. Muto's sculptures are at spiritually significant places around the world. The sculpture's stone base comes from the Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Over 20 tribes consider the Tower to be a sacred place. This was the location where White Buffalo Calf Woman delivered the first sacred pipe to the Lakota People. The Circle of Sacred Smoke represents a puff of smoke from a ceremonial pipe used by Native American People.
